M's X Factor Recap!


Hey M Girls,

The X Factor competition is slowly winding down, and with only four acts left as we approach the semi-finals, things are more intense than ever! Missed even a second of the journey from the final six to the final four? Read on for our weekly X Factor recap!

The Performances

With so few acts left, each performer had to perform two songs to determine their fate! The first of two themes was unplugged, which meant the contestants had to perform a stripped down version of a song-- perf to really hear their voices! The second theme was songs voted by X Factor fans-- and we think the choices were some of the best so far!

Check out some of our fave performances of the night:

After Carly Rose Sonenclar's unplugged performance of Justin Bieber's "As Long As You Love Me", Demi said that her version was better than the original-- and we just might agree!:

For their unplugged performance, Emblem 3 chose Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are"-- and we're loving it!:

The fans chose Demi Lovato's song "Give Your Heart A Break" for Fifth Harmony-- and even Demi thought the girls' version was better than her own!:

Could there have been a more fitting song for Diamond White to sing than Rihanna's "Diamonds"? We love her entrance!:

Which performance did you like best?

The Eliminations

After fighting he way out of the bottom, CeCe Frey was the first to be eliminated by America's votes. We can totally CeCe with a successful career as a pop star in the future! After the judges voted, it was announced that Diamond White was the second contestant going home! We're totally gonna miss the diva energy she brought to the stage each week.

We were so bummed to see CeCe and Diamond go home! Check back next week for another X Factor recap, and be sure to watch an all new episode of X Factor at 8/7c tonight on Fox!

Let's dish: -What was your highlight of last week's X Factor? Do you think the right person went home?
